Subject[11/23] ipmi: handle run_to_completion properly in deliver_recv_msg()
2.6.27-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Jiri Kosina <jkosina@suse.cz>

commit a747c5abc329611220f16df0bb4cf0ca4a7fdf0c upstream.

If run_to_completion flag is set, it means that we are running in a
single-threaded mode, and thus no locks are held.

This fixes a deadlock when IPMI notifier is being called during panic.
